The hubby and I went on a little weekend get away to San Fran/wine country a few weekends back. One of my favorite places in the world is California wine country (it feels like a dream, I mean just look at that photo!) Needless to say, we danced our happy wine dance all the way through some really amazing wineries (getting a little happier with each stop).

We were so lucky to have attended a lunch half way through our day that the chef at Clos du Bois fixed from scratch (because it was amazing and because we might’ve passed out by 2pm otherwise). Everything was grown locally, fully handmade, and perfectly cooked to absorb too much delicious wine.

After lunch we visited a couple other wineries, ending the day at Robert Mondavi.

The best part about wine country is each winery is so different. Some of the practices are similar or the same, the processes can be similar, but each winery has their own special touch. Robert Mondavi is so special because the entire property is set up as an art exhibit. It is stunning. (No matter how much wine you’ve consumed, the beauty won’t be lost on you).

Whenever we leave wine country, we are always the following things a. 5 lbs. heavier; b. planning our next trip; c. trying to figure out how we can win the lottery and move here permanently.

Since I’m a little obsessed, I am deeming this second week of May, California Week on paperyrain. Next up on the blog, the Muir Wood Forest visit and our day trip out to Sausalito in CA, followed by some of our favorite spots in San Fran.

Here’s to wine country being like walking into a magazine, even in the rain (complete with rainbows).
